Camp Ivydale is my safe place, but it is also a place that challenges me, tests me, and puts into perspective where my faith is. I have been blessed to have been able to go to teen camp for three years, and my final year was so wonderful thanks to the people there. I am so happy to spend camp with the best people on earth. I leave camp with a stronger faith, knowledge, and understanding of what I believe, but I don't want to leave that growth and learning up there. I've been strengthened in my belief in Christ and I've learned to love the Lord with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength. Camp every year is such a blessing, and I hope to share what I've learned everywhere I go. Thank you, Ivydale, for helping me find myself, and most importantly, find God.

I'm so blessed to have been able to spend a week at Camp Ivydale with some of the most God-loving and kindhearted people out there. No one can make me laugh harder or smile more than some of these kids and I am forever grateful for them. Thank you for helping me learn to love God with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength.
